SOFTBALL

We are part of BA Clubs and are based at Imperial College London Heston in Cranford near Heathrow Airport. Membership to the Softball section is open to both BA employees and non-BA employees and their family.

Facilities/Benefits

Softball is a modified form of baseball. The ball is bigger, the bases a bit closer and the ball is pitched underarm. We play mixed sex softball (the most popular in this country). New members are always welcome and the section has a variety of bats and gloves to loan out, so you can start playing without any specialist equipment.

Competitive

The softball teams are represented in Division One (BA Jets) and Division Two (BA Flyers) of the Windsor and Maidenhead League, and entered in selected tournaments at weekends

Social

We aim to organise a variety of social events throughout the season, plus the occasional international tour. Aside from the post-match analysis in the bar we host a tournament in the summer at the Concorde Club and aim to have at least one major dinner/disco evening each year.

Coaching

Training is provided by both our own team members and qualified coaches on ad-hoc basis, which focuses on developing key skills such as catching, throwing and batting.

Cost

£25 full membership & £5 non-playing
